The Global Lateral Flow Assay Market, by Product Type (Kits and Reagents and Lateral Flow Readers), By Technique (Competitive Assay, Multiplex Detection Assay, and Sandwich Assay), By Application (Veterinary Diagnostic, Drug Development and Quality Testing, Clinical Testing and Food Safety, and Environmental Testing), by End User (Hospitals, Diagnostic Laboratories, Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Companies, and Home Care Settings), was valued US$ 5.68 billion in 2017, and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.5% over the forecast period (2017 - 2025).
Growing demand for point-of-care testing coupled with increasing need for early diagnosis of infectious disease are major factors driving growth of the global lateral flow assay market over the forecast period. The continuous research and development in the lateral flow assay technology allows to introduce the better and affordable product in the field of clinical diagnosis. In February 2018, researchers from University of Wisconsin–Madison created the cheap and effective tuberculosis (TB) diagnostic assays, based on lateral flow assay technology. The current diagnostic assays for TB involve lengthy DNA extraction and analysis from sputum samples. However, this new technique based lateral flow assay, uses lipoarabinomannan (LAM) protein from urine samples as a biomarker to detect TB, within short duration of time.

Moreover, in October 2017, SYGNIS AG introduced its Universal Lateral Flow Assay (LFA) kit, which is being commercialized under the Innova Biosciences brand name. This novel product provides a tool for the easy and quick development of customized sandwich lateral flow assays, thereby providing physicians with faster access to POC testing for rapid early detection of disease. In April 2017, Neogen Corp. introduced a single-step lateral flow Immunochromatographic assay. The assay detects the raw pork and can be used to screen raw and processed raw meats in food processing industry. This test offers quick and easy test to prevent the accidental or deliberate insertion of pork in the other raw processed meat. Moreover, manufacturers are focusing on the developing new point-of-care testing lateral flow assay system, which will offer quick, easy, and accurate result at low cost.
